“As society fights to go from protest to policy reform, the revitalization of athlete activism has sparked The Sports Justice Movement.”
Dr. Shaun M. Anderson's The Black Athlete Revolt is the first book to take a historical and contemporary look at how Black athletes have used their influence to move beyond protests and create substantial change for Black Americans. As society fights to go from protest to policy reform, the revitalization of athlete activism in recent years has sparked a new platform: The Sports Justice Movement. This book details the ascension of this movement, where it is presently, and what’s next.
Shaun Anderson is an associate professor of organizational communication at Loyola Marymount University. He is also the founder of CSR Global Consulting, LLC, which helps sports organizations build social responsibility initiatives.
